Blanche Lincoln has sent a letter to a constituent using vintage anti-gay talking points. She equated ENDA with “special rights.” Weak. Very weak. From the Max Brantley at the Arkansas Times:
I’d missed this, but apparently Sen. Blanche Lincoln is indicating to constituents that she opposes legislation to bar discrimination in employment practices on account of sexual orientation and gender identity. In a letter to constituents, she indicates this would amount to a “special right.” No, senator, the law would end a special and particularly invidious brand of discrimination. It’s a sad addition to Lincoln’s list of disappointing panders. Unlike her panders to the wealthy, which are merely about money, this one has a particularly hateful human toll.
That doesn’t sound good at all. It’s pathetic actually.
